SARASOTA, FL—Moments after attempting to swing for the fences in a home run derby at Ed Smith Stadium, Norb Petr tried to catch his breath. The balls were well short of the wall, but for Petr, the experience was a grand slam. The longtime Baltimore Orioles fan was living the dream at the team's Spring Training home, feeling like he was part of the team he's cheered on for decades. The Rosedale resident survived both prostate and melanoma cancers, so this was a good as year as any after going through so much. "Every year I would make an excuse even though my wife and sons would say, 'Do it, you'd love it. You're going to be 60 this year,'" he said. "Now I'm mad I didn't do it before."

The retail stores will officially offer a full line grocery store and be open 24 hours starting on Wednesday.
Scott Bonsall admits the last six months have not been easy for him. The manager of the Walmart in Rosedale said customers have been extremely patient as his store, located at 6420 Petrie Way, has been a large construction site while the retail chain has undertaken an extensive remodeling project of the 10-year-old building.
